Before the division of Germany , Reichsstraße 245 ran from Halberstadt to Helmstedt . Since the road crossed the Inner German border three times over a very short distance , trunk road 245 was relocated from Barneberg in the direction of Haldensleben during GDR times . The two short West German sections in the Helmstedt district kept the name Bundesstraße 245. Since the German reunification in 1990 , the section from Barneberg to Helmstedt has been called the Bundesstraße 245a .
